Jaden Smith has swag for days in new music video “Watch Me”
And in Jaden’s new music video for his song “Watch Me,” we get an extended look at his style and aesthetic.
The entire music video for “Watch Me” takes place in a desert, so there’s not much to distract you from the man in front of you.
And watching the video your thoughts will probably vacillate between Jaden Smith is so cool, wow Jaden Smith has really gotten hot, and OMG did you hear that line that just came out of his mouth,
Jaden says a lot of memorable things in the video, I wrote down six lyrics, but if I had to pick a favorite… well, it would be a tie between when he says somebody is “such a hypebeast you making me vomit” and “you see me dancing like I’m Elvis / just tell your man that it’s all in the pelvis.”
I don’t know about you, but I love it when men acknowledge their pelvises. It’s very sexual. And Jaden has a point. Your man probably doesn’t know what to do with his pelvis unless he’s in bed. And even then, maybe not.
At the end of the music video, it’s revealed that Jaden is playing a character called Syre, and that a project called “Syre” is coming soon. Genius speculates “Syre” is the name of Jaden’s debut full-length album, which sounds like just plausible enough to be probably true.
And if you’re wondering where “Syre” comes from, like I did, it’s actually Jaden’s second middle name. His full Will and Jada-given name is Jaden Christopher Syre Smith.
The music video for “Watch Me” also features Willow Smith, Harry Hudson, Moises Arias, Odessa Adlon and Tyler Cole, although TBH I was so focused on Jaden I really couldn’t tell you what they did in the video.
